DIY Sight Words Go Fish Game to Make with Your Kids

Keep Reading Skills Going During Summer

My youngest is going into first grade in the fall.  I wanted to keep working on sight words with her this summer, but I wanted a more engaging way to do it rather than flashcards.  Luckily, I remembered I had created a game back when I taught primary grades.  This DIY sight game can be used either as Go Fish or Memory.

Check out this Amazing Website

I used free graphics from to create this cute game.  This site has a ton of free cute clipart for teachers to use to create printables. The site has colored graphics and black and white.  I created these with black and white graphics originally to save ink, but I discovered I could have my daughter color the pictures to get her involved in making the game

Getting Little Ones Involved in Making the Game

I used my paper cutter to quickly cut apart the cards, but you could have your child cut them apart on the dotted lines.  They can then color the pictures to personalize their game.

This is a fun way to practice those sight words over summer so your child retains what they have learned and maybe learn a few new words too.
